There’s never a bad time to celebrate Dr. Seuss; but there is a good time, a wonderful time, a Seuss-pendous time to celebrate him.
And that time is Monday, March 3 and the place will be all three of Mentor Public Library’s branches. The library is commemorating Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America with a bevy of Seuss-themed events.
The party will go all day at the library’s Main Branch. Kids can make their own Horton puppet and Whoville specks. They can play a game, trying to catch a Red Fish or Blue Fish (maybe even two fish.) Kids can also get a special Horton Hears a Who!booklet with fun games, puzzles and pictures to color at the Children’s Services desk.
There will even be a birthday cake while it lasts.
Meanwhile, at the Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch, the library will host a special story time from 4 to 5 p.m. for children three years and older. Kids will listen to classic Seuss stories and make their own version of the hat made famous by The Cat in the hat.
The Mentor Headlands Library Branch will also have a Seuss story time from 3:45 to 4:30 on Monday, March 3. Kids can make a craft and enjoy some bread and jam for Sam I Am.
